Bailey/44 Sets New Course

LOS ANGELES — Meet the new Bailey/44.
That Los Angeles contemporary brand that had become somewhat formulaic in more recent years with its go-to blueprint of striping and cutouts has been making some big changes the past few months it hopes will set the business and product assortment down a new path.
In the fall, the company brought on David Lazar as president of Bailey and sister brand Ali & Jay. Lazar prior to that had been serving as chief merchandising officer for the digital styling and shopping service Wantable with the industry veteran having held positions at Express as vice president of merchandising, led a turnaround as president at knitwear brand Three Dots and also launched businesses such as knit brand Twenty Tees and digital buying tool ThreadSuite.
Cofounder Shelli Segal transitioned to a board seat, stepping away from involvement in the day-to-day and product development. Meanwhile, former Vince head of creative Micheline Ip stepped in as creative director of Bailey/44. The rest of the executive team has been filled out with the hiring of Bailey/44’s director of design operations Abby Abrego at Bailey and Katie Henry as chief marketing officer for both brands. There’s also Anna Perna, who was brought on

Elon Musk Hits Back At ‘60 Minutes’ On Twitter, Of Course


When he was questioned about his use of Twitter in a 60 Minutes interview this week, Tesla founder and chief executive Elon Musk said: “I use my tweets to express myself. Some people use their hair. I use Twitter… Twitter’s a war zone. If somebody’s gonna jump in the warzone, it’s, like, ‘Okay, you’re in the arena. Let’s go!’”

So, they can’t say they weren’t warned.

Musk lived up to his word Tuesday morning, when he used Twitter to criticize the show, after CBS edited a clip from its interview with him to make it appear he had stated he didn’t want to be the carmaker’s chairman again.

Of Course Stephen Colbert Has Plenty of Jokes About Trump at Bush’s Funeral

President Donald Trump attended the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, and of course, Stephen Colbert, found the humor. “They even assured him that the choir would drown out the sound of other ex-presidents rolling in their graves,” Colbert joked in his monologue on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show.

The late-night host pointed out that not insulting Trump was nearly impossible by virtue of comparison, like when Bush’s biographer Jon Meacham said in his eulogy that Bush “life code was: tell the truth; don’t blame people.” Colbert wondered if that was already bending the rules. “As soon as you start praising someone’s honesty, you’re automatically throwing shade at Donald Trump. I mean, Obama made Trump seem like a bad president just by sitting next to him.”

Speaking of former President Barack Obama, Colbert said, “It was quite a moving sight to see the presidents and the first ladies in the front row, waiting to honor President Bush, chatting comfortably with one another,” Colbert said. “Until Trump showed up, and then it became silent-staring time. Donald Trump is the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral.”
